Resurface, Regenerate and Tighten Your Skin with NeoGen PRS!
NeoGen PSR, or Plasma Skin Regeneration, is an FDA cleared, nonsurgical skin regeneration treatment for skin tightening, rejuvenation, and resurfacing. NeoGen improves elasticity to help firm, tone, and smooth skin on the face, neck, and body. This revolutionary non-surgical treatment uses Nitrogen Plasma Technology with unparalleled results.
NeoGen is the first and only treatment clinically proven to regenerate skin. 100% of the skin is treated, initiating regeneration deep below the surface, and remodeling a natural skin architecture.
NeoGen can address:
- Fine lines + deep wrinkles
- Pigmentation, age spots, and sun damage
- Scarring on face and body
- Loose skin on the upper and lower eyelids
- Large pores
- Actinic and Seborrheic Keratosis
- Active acne and acne scars
- Skin laxity in your jawline, jowl, and mid-face
What is NeoGen PSR?
NeoGen is a one-of-a-kind skin resurfacing treatment that excels in skin rejuvenation for the face, neck, chest, and hands. NeoGen provides deep tissue remodeling with rapid healing through Nitrogen Plasma Technology. This state-of-the-art precision treatment causes controlled damage to the skin that stimulates your own body to jump into action with a natural healing process.
After the surface of the skin is treated with passes of the plasma technology, new collagen is created underneath the surface of the skin. With a variety of energy levels, the skin will shed its outer layers. The energy goes deep into the dermis tissue resulting in a protective outer layer to the treated area. The healing process begins immediately, and skin starts to regenerate. Gradually the old epidermis is naturally shed as the new upper layers of your skin emerge. After peeling, or sloughing, your new skin has a renewed look and feel, better tone, texture, and overall tightening.
Benefits of NeoGen Plasma
- Overall skin tightening and improved laxity by boosting collagen production.
- Long-lasting effects with continued tissue regeneration up to two years post treatment.
- Improves the skin under eyes including dark circles and bags.
- Sagging skin is improved along with fine lines and deep wrinkles.
- Treats skin pigmentation, sun damage, acne, scarring and age spots.
- While not a substitute for a blepharoplasty, NeoGen can provide safe, precise and significant tightening on the upper and lower eyelids making it a non-surgical treatment option.
- Customizable settings ensure Skin MD providers can safely treat all skin types.
How does NeoGen technology differ from other treatments?
Unlike light-based technologies, NeoGen converts nitrogen gas into plasma energy which penetrates the superficial and deeper levels of the dermis. This controlled damage to the dermis encourages your body’s natural healing response, triggering healthy new collagen and elastin growth for immediate skin tightening and firmer skin over time. Plasma is produced inside the NeoGen handpiece through the combination of medical-grade nitrogen gas and ultra-high radio frequency to deliver heat deep into the dermis layer while treating the entire skin structure for optimal results.
When the thermal plasma energy hits the skin it causes an immediate contraction, creating a tightening effect which continues to develop for up to 12 months. This energy rapidly heats the skin but is non-ablative meaning it does not fully remove the skin’s surface like other ablative treatments typically used for skin resurfacing.
The plasma is precisely delivered at varying depths to encourage skin tightening, resurfacing, and regeneration. NeoGen plasma has been shown to have long-lasting effects with continued improvement up to two years post treatment. Treatment settings are completely customizable based on your concerns and goals, skin tone, and downtime consideration.
NeoGen Treatment Overview
A topical numbing cream is applied to increase comfort. (PRO-NOX is also readily available at Skin MD for interested patients.) Depending on the settings, most patients find the treatment comfortable and may experience a blast of warm air in certain areas. This treatment is truly non-invasive, so there will be no open wounds. NeoGen uses your skin as a natural barrier and maintains a protective layer that encourages rapid healing and prevents infection.
Day 1: Immediately after your treatment skin will be red and warm. Your Skin MD provider will apply a layer of Aquaphor jelly to your treated skin which you will continuously apply for the first 24 hours.
Days 2 and 3: Your skin will be red and fragile and will need to be kept moist with Aquaphor for the first 3-days.
Days 4 to 6: Your skin will turn brown and the natural barrier that formed to protect your new skin as it developed will slough and peel away.
Days 7 to 10: As the damaged skin sloughs away and the new skin emerges, skin will look smoother, more evenly toned, brighter, and more youthful. Results will continue to improve over the following months.
The NeoGen Results
The skin tightening effects of NeoGen are immediate with ongoing improvements as new collagen growth continues over time. Current studies have shown that NeoGen treatments offer intense fibroblast regeneration up to two years after treatment.
Am I a candidate for NeoGen?
The ideal candidate for NeoGen Plasma resurfacing is anyone wanting to rejuvenate the look and feel of their skin, reduce lines and wrinkles, improve and smooth skin texture, a brighter and more even skin tone, and soften acne scars.
NeoGen is contraindicated if you are pregnant or lactating, have an auto-immune disease, cancer, or skin disease.
What areas can be treated?
NeoGen can effectively treat the face, neck, chest or décolletage, and hands.
How long is NeoGen downtime?
Downtime can vary depending on the state of your skin, your desired goal and the depth of the treatment. Typically, patients will experience 3-7 days of social downtime.
How many NeoGen treatments are needed?
Skin MD providers typically recommend a more aggressive NeoGen resurfacing treatment for patients looking for a non-surgical facelift option. However, NeoGen protocols are also available to treat our patients with lower settings for a series of three treatments every 4-6 weeks. Treatment times vary depending on the area and your individual goals with a full-face treatment taking around 45-60 minutes and smaller targeted areas lasting 15-30 minutes.
